The inspiration for my final collection ‘Resplendent’ initially came from the Pop Art movement of the 1960’s and the Punk movement of the 1970’s. I explored different ways of creating a more feminine yet powerful twist on the use of latex in fashion and lingerie. By working personally with Stretchline UK I was able to implement Silicone Rubber into my collection, a breakthrough technology in the industry creating a fashion forward feel to the project.
Aimed at the luxury lingerie and high fashion markets I was able to focus on print and 3D embellishment enabling me to create the innovative material Latex Lace. This allowed me to further influence the idea of using fluorescent materials throughout my collection creating a futuristic outlook on my initial inspiration points, reinforcing the name Resplendent.
